Tasty Thursday *small edit*

I did this bread last week, but saved it to share with you today. This is banana bread.

I LOVE banana bread. One of my friends brings me a couple of overripe bananas once in a while. She brought some on a day when I had a couple as well, and that calls for~ a double batch! I do not share my banana bread recipe, because, well, it is top secret. But it is good! It is moist, and yum yum sweet. I do not usually add nuts, but you could if you wanted. This recipe is all from scratch, but I have used a recipe that starts with white cake mix in the past(and that is pretty good, too). So, hope you enjoy the looks of the treat today, it tasted great!
*edited to add*These are mini loaves. I am also pretty bad at overcooking the regular size. My double batch makes about 6 of these. They are 5 inches by 2.5 inches. The wells on the pan are about 1.5 inches deep, but this bread rises, and the finished loaf is about 3 inches at the peak. This is perfect for the bread ministry project I bake for at church. Also, it is just the right size for giveaways!

I haven't mastered the art of big banana bread loaves. I generally overcook the big loaves...the mini-loaves, however, I have gotten down to an art. Which works fine, because then I can give them away and they don't sit in the house calling my name. :)

Hi Miss Snippity!

Long time no blog stalking! Thanks for checking and commenting on my blog, and making it easy to find you again! Reading through your past posts, I can understand and empathize with some of your struggles. I too hate parent teacher conferences, due to the fact that one of my child has issues too. And, I love Disneyland. It is truly the happiest place on earth. But, I am amazed at your ability to cook and even post about it! Your family must be so blessed to have you! My family is lucky if the mac n cheese from the box turns out good!

God bless you!

Mmmm, I love banana bread, too. Well, any muffin-type baked good! I usually make a different kind each week for breakfasts.
